Local Delivery

Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards are only available for in-store pickup or local delivery within the Puget Sound area of Western Washington. Delivery is available for free on new boat and board purchases of at least $1500 and within 30 miles of our Port Gamble, Washington store. A ferry surcharge may apply for deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound. We do not have the ability to ship Kayaks or SUP's, other than inflatables, outside of Western Washington at this time.

The same geography which makes the Puget Sound area such a wonderful place to paddle, also makes it difficult for us to make deliveries. We all love riding the ferries, but they sure can get expensive! Deliveries to Seattle and the east side of Puget Sound on purchases under $3000 are subject to a ferry surcharge up to $60. See the map for approximate delivery radius. If you add the boat or board to your cart we have a shipping calculator which will show you if delivery is available for your address, and whether any charges will apply. If you are outside of this area or have any other special considerations you can give us a call at (360) 297-4659 and we will be happy to see what we can work out for you.

The Eddyline Rio is expressly designed for the small to medium paddlers looking for a recreational style kayak with spirited performance and nimble handling.

The Rio is 24″ wide, providing excellent stability without feeling oversized. The Rio is lightweight and compact enough for effortless day use, but has all the features of a sea kayak, making it appropriate for a huge range of paddling destinations.

At just under 12 feet in length and only 35 pounds, the Eddyline Rio is an excellent small person's recreational kayak with some of the safety features such as bulkheads found on sea kayaks. It features hard chines and V-hull in thermoformed composite construction (TCC). The Rio has a medium sized cockpit with 3-way adjustable back-band, 10" and rear round hatches (all are Select Designs rubber hatches). Hip and thigh bracing are good, cockpit ergonomics excellent for smaller person, foot braces are easy to adjust while in the cockpit.

Carbonlite 2000 brings the technology of plastic kayaks to an entirely new level of performance. Eddyline pioneered this technology and Carbonlite 2000 is an Eddyline exclusive. The material looks and performs like fiberglass with clear advantages over other plastics: dimensional stability and increased stiffness, higher heat distortion temperatures, hard glossy “non fuzzing” finishes with excellent abrasion and impact resistance, easy repairability, superior UV resistance and lighter weights. Carbonlite 2000 is extremely tough, but it is also easily repaired in the event of an accident. It has endured the test of time in the hands of many paddlers, liveries and tour operators and is highly suitable for nearly all kayak applications.

Eddyline is committed to manufacturing in an environmentally responsible manner. Carbonlite 2000 is 100% recyclable (as are the bulkheads, cockpit and seat), all scrap plastic is recycled and virtually no waste is generated.
